Abstract

The authors describe a new approach that designs optimal patient placement rules and staffing-to-demand scheduling schemes. The placement rules enable care teams to deliver care at census levels that maximize the productivity of current care models across aggregated units and reduces the number of units experiencing census variation. The scheduling schemes ensure that staff is available to meet patient needs so that work schedules become predictable and premium pay virtually is eliminated.
